Posted (edited) · About Initial Bottom Layers

Hello.
I'm not sure what the effect of the Initial Bottom Layers setting is.
If I set up the following
Bottom Layer - 3 
Initial Bottom Layer - 1 

The number of SKINs on the bottom is 1.

I thought the number of SKINs on the bottom was going to be 3 layers and the slowdown was going to be 1 layer, but it wasn't.

In what cases do you intend to use Initial Bottom Layers?

Best regards.

    Initial bottom layers specifies the number of skin layers at the very bottom of the print, i.e. those layers that are touching the buildplate (or raft). Bottom layers specifies the number of skin layers that are immediately above air (or support). Top layers specifies the number of skin layers that have air (or support) immediately above them. Hope this helps.
